Fantastic trail to walk or roller blade

Its a great trail for brisk walk or roller blade. Its been very buggy last couple weeks, so the kids's playground is not really an option but soon enough they will pass

Love having walks and ponder upon anything that comes to my mind, friendly people, happy Doggies and nice views. Butlington City lately added as well the historical facts. Good for family, friends and healthy adventures in the city - we are so blessed!

Scenic bicycle ride from the bottom on Brant Street and all the way to the draw bridge under the Burlington Skyway. You can people watch and lake watch and never get bored. So nice.

Walking this every morning at about 7 a.m. Peaceful, easy walk with great views of the lake and early sun. I live downtown Burlington and from Brant Street to the Lift Bridge and back is a pleasant 5 k. Note: Spenser Smith Lake promenade is being repaved from April until June from Brant Street west. You can't walk along there.... More

A family favourite. I try and get there to walk my dog when it's warm enough. Trail is well designed and definitely scenic. It just has to be warm enough to walk near the water!

What a gorgeous walk. I love spending time here with my family. It can get crowded on nice days but still a pleasure to be there.

Good for long or short hike without too much of a challenge. With great scenery around the bay & fresh air.

Thank Psyduck_3000
